Eat out for less this October

Autumn rocked up a bit quick didn’t it. Before you know it the wind’s playing havoc with your brolly and you’re getting drenched on Chester Road jumping between puddles (just me?). Well, it’s a good job there’s another month’s worth of eating out offers, deals and discounts to make leaving your house, scratch that your bed, worth it.

This month there’s exciting discounted small plate action, pizza deals, big chunks off your final bill and some much needed £1 mix and match. Not to mention £2 Boerewors action (hot dog to me and you). So book yourself in, beat the Autumn blues and get yourself filled up for less. Even better, share the article with a friend and spread the love.

Here's a list of our recommended eating-out offers for the month of August, and they’re all handily broken down into suggested days. You're welcome. 

Of course, there's always our trusty app - free to download and with up to 60% off at some of the region's best restaurants.
